Microsoft Launches Office Mobile Android App
If you are a Microsoft Office 365 user, then you will be glad to know that Microsoft is making its Office suite available on your Android phones.
Yes, you can now use your Android phone to write documents in Word or edit spreadsheets on Excel and even make changes to a stunning presentation on PowerPoint.
The Office Mobile app is free to download but you can only make it work if you have a Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus or Home Premium subscription. On top of the $100 per year subscription, the app is only available for smartphones in the United States for now. We have no idea when there would be tablet support and when it will be available in other countries.
